Have been to Granny's Grill 3-4 times over the past 12 months and usually pick either their "regular" Spareribs or their Hot Ribs. Both are full of flavor and charred correctly. These aren't smoked ribs like in the US so the meat is very tender but won't necessarily fall off the bone. It has a good glazing with nice sweetness... More

Maybe one of the best piece of meat I've ever eaten. Super hot small place, a bit noisy, but the food is so tasty!!! The price is ok and the people working there are friendly. Not for vegetarians...

I am a bit skeptical when it comes to place recommended by friends, I often am disappointed in those more bistro style places. Either the stuff you get is either overcooked or undercooked topped with ready made sauces. Boy was I wrong: if you want a perfectly grilled piece of meat you should go here. I had the picanha medium... More

The ribs are still the best in the world but too many people now know the secret!!!! I hate trip advisor but its my own fault for reviewing. You must book in advance or risk being turned away. Also bear in mind its closed Sunday and Monday! Unfortunately because of its popularity the service standards are slipping. Its packed out... More

Landed in Amsterdam on a Saturday evening for a weekend visiting my parents. They took me straight to Granny's. We had booked in advance and had been told we may have to wait at the bar on arrival however we were sat straight away. I quickly became aware of why we may have had to wait and that was because...

Love the spare ribs! I am not a big meat eater, but you can get me to go to have spare ribs here! Service is always friendly , visitors are all sorts: young , old, couples, friends, families , business. Wine menu is not so big, (nor the variaty of food ) but what they have is very very good.

Good ribs at a very reasonable price for Europe. Free tap water and bread. It's like you're in the States! A full rack comes with salad+fries and is more than enough for me. The flavor and texture was good but it's not the proper fall-off-the-bones BBQ I was hoping for.

Wow! I think I just had the best Spare Ribs in my life! Chose the hot version with fresh pepper, that's actually quite spice but very tasty. The Rioja was a good choice as well.

Granny's was a pleasant surprise! Service was friendly and atmosphere was romantic and dark. Complimentary bread with delicious homemade garlic butter and FREE tap water (most restaurants in Rotterdam charge you almost $6 for a bottle of water). Appetizers are not needed. Husband had the ribs, which was a generous portion served with a side salad and fries. I had... More

Really great place! Not in terms of cool and snobish but in simple, cosy and really nice food. Tomato soup is amazing, bread they serve with garlic butter made by them is superb. And spare ribs. .. have heard they are one of the best if not the best in Rotterdam! Also drinks in good selection. Works only evenings and... More

On the outskirts of central Rotterdam. This is a family run business and the food is excellent but make sure to book.
